Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

However, GABA is the preferred substrate and the carnitine concentrations which significantly inhibited GABA uptake exceed the physiological carnitine levels in vivo.
The high-affinity uptake of GABA was competitively inhibited by carnitine , but the inhibition of the low-affinity uptake of GABA was of the mixed type.
